By SOP newswire3

One strike, in the Marib Governorate Sept. 20, killed two operatives of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

Another strike, Sept. 22 in the al Baydah Governorate, killed two other al-Qaida operatives.

These were al-Qaida operatives who continue to support their organization`s destabilizing effects in Yemen, " said U.S. Central Command spokesman Army Maj. Josh T. Jacques.

U.S. Central Command continues to protect the U.S., its allies and partners from these threats by denying Yemen as a haven for AQAP, " Jacques added.

Al-Qaida and its associated movements remain a significant threat, said Jacques, noting Centcom will not relent in its mission to degrade and defeat al-Qaida and its remnants.

Centcom`s mission, he said, is to direct and enable military operations and activities with allies and partners to increase regional security and stability in support of enduring U.S. interests.
